Overview

George Bellows (1882-1925): Modern American Life at the Royal Academy of Arts is the first retrospective of works by American realist painter George Bellows to be held in the UK. When Bellows died at age 42, he was considered one of the greatest artists in America. His fascination with New York’s gritty urban landscape, its technological marvels and the diversity of its inhabitants, made him both an artist of the modern city and an insightful observer of the dynamic and challenging decades of the early 20th century. Bellows’ short career encompassed a range of subject matter and the exhibition explores the principle themes of his work, featuring boxing fights, cityscapes, views of the Hudson River, social scenes, seascapes, portraits and the First World War. The exhibition presents 71 works of art: 38 paintings, 14 drawings and 17 lithographs, covering Bellow’s career between 1905 and 1925.
